Rega Planar 10 Turntable
Like its sibling, the Planar 8, the Planar 10 was inspired by the ultimate Rega turntable, the Naiad. Rega decided early on that instead of an evolution of the previous RP10, the new Planar 10 was to be developed and engineered to encapsulate the essence of the Naiad at a more affordable price. The Planar 10 narrows the gap between itself and the Naiad even further by using more exotic materials, carefully selected to reduce mass and improve rigidity throughout the design. New innovations in hub bearing, sub platter, motor and drive belt design have led to even greater accuracy in turntable speed which directly improve sound performance.
Music That Comes Alive
Our brief listen to the Planar 10 tells us the music is really going to come to life, more so than even the Planar 8 which impressed us in this regard. More when we have a long listen.
Less Mass, More Music
When Rega made their $45,000 Naiad turntable they did everything they could to reduce mass in the system. The Planar 10, with its space-age materials and design, reduces mass in the right places to get you closer to the music.
Almost a Naiad
Rega set out not to just upgrade their great RP10 but to come up with a turntable that gave listeners the performance of their reference Naiad at almost 1/8 the price. They have succeeded in this!
